Putin slams West’s ‘disrespect’ of voters over Trump, Brexit

Imaduddin December 20, 2018

MOSCOW: Russia’s Vladimir Putin on Thursday accused the political establishment in the West of ignoring the will of voters by rejecting Donald Trump’s presidential win and the Brexit referendum.

“They don’t want to recognise (Trump’s) victory. That’s disrespect of voters,” Putin said. “It’s the same in Britain: Brexit happened, but nobody wants to implement it. They don’t recognise vote results, democratic procedures are diminished.”
